About

Hi gang! I am Michael Patrick Hicks, author of several horror books, including The Resurrectionists, Broken Shells: A Subterranean Horror Novella, and Mass Hysteria. I also co-host Staring Into The Abyss, a podcast focused on all things horror, and am a member of the Horror Writers Association.

In addition to writing and podcasting, I'm also a voracious reader and prolific book reviewer, and manage High Fever Books, a website that delivers reviews and features on the latest in genre fiction releases from independent and mainstream publishing. Covering a wide variety of categories and subgenres, you will find there critiques on horror, science fiction, crime, mystery, thriller, and suspense stories, the kind of books that promise to send chills down your spine and make your blood run cold!

I've been reviewing books for more than a decade (longer than I've been an author!), beginning with my work as a paid comic books reviewer for the now-defunct Graphic Novel Reporter from 2008-2012. I also spent several years writing audiobook reviews for Audiobook Reviewer before branching out on my own with High Fever Books.

This page will feature Patreon-exclusive reviews where I'll talk about the comics I've been reading and movies I've been watching (like the recently released Color Out Of Space), as well as advance book reviews before they are published publicly anywhere else (like High Fever Books, Goodreads, or Amazon). As this Patreon page grows, readers can expect additional exclusive content, like Patreon-only pod- and vidcasts, as well a wealth of previously published reviews from my years in the book reviewing community that you may have missed!

But that's not all! While the focus of this page will be geared toward my own reviews, there will also be the occasional snippets of information regarding my published works and exclusive first-looks at cover art and details on upcoming releases. However, when it comes to showcasing my own work, those updates will be fairly sparse since I am a part-time creator. Hence, my primary focus on reviews. It's the one area of my writing career where I can guarantee regular output and provide you with fresh reading material on a regular basis. It can take me months (or longer...) to write a novel, but I can generally write a review or two a week, giving you a fresh take on some new and recently released books, films, and graphic novels or trade collections. If you're a big genre reader, you'll find a lot to sink your teeth into here, particularly as I build-up my archive of past reviews and keep things fresh with all-new critiques.

Thank you so much for your support!
